I'm in the market for a US made vertical milling machine. Would really like a Rockwell 21-120 or 122, or something very similar. Looking for something similar to, but smaller than a Bridgeport.

My budget says $800-$1,500 depending on condition and accessories. Could go higher for the right deal.

Looking for a machine within 250 miles of Wilmington, Delaware.

Thanks. And I will cover the commission to the FF.

That's the price range of a genuine Bridgeport model M with a half horse motor .

No doubt. From what I've found these smaller mills command a bit of a premium do to their scarcity.

I'd love to have a Bridgeport, but it's just not going to happen due to limited space in the shop.

Just a suggestion but a model M is not that large  .Now I'm talking the real old round column style that take either number 2 Brown and Sharp or number two Morse taper collets .
